Hi I've never done any of this before but I really need some advice. For the past 2 weeks I started having really bad headaches and new pains in my back and several other places but I refused to call the doctor because I'm a first time mom so I just figured it was normal. Well I finally made it to my regular appointment and my pulse was 96 and my blood pressure was 128/70. My pulse is normally in the 70s and my blood pressure is usually around 106/60. They also found protein and white blood cells in my urine. They sent me home and told me to rest and call with any other problems. 2 days later I went back to the doctor because the headaches were alot worse and I was having severe pain in my right upper abdomen. My blood pressure was 150/110 and my pulse was 130...They took it again about 30 minutes later and it was 140/100 but this time there was no protein in my urine. They sent me home to rest, even though thats what I'd been doing. I've been monitoring my blood pressure at home and my pulse stays in the 100s, at rest and my blood pressure, at rest, is creeping up into the 130s. The second I get up my pulse jumps to the 140s and my blood pressure hits the 140s-150s/70-80s. Can I please get some peoples opinons? Thanks
